An Overview of the Loan Process

There's little question that getting a mortgage is a complicated process. You would not be researching mortgage loans if you could get a loan in a single day with a simple application. We do the heavy lifting for you, so you can concentrate on what's important — preparing to move into your new home or saving money.

Getting a loan involves four major milestones.

Step one: determine how much you can borrow

A couple of factors determine this amount. What kind of monthly payment are you looking for? And given your unique credit and employment history, income and debt, and goals, how much will a lender loan you? Use the calculators on our website to determine your monthly payment amount. And we can guide you to the right loan amount and best program for you when you answer a few quewstions. Based on standard lender guidelines, we'll get you a good idea of what kind of terms and loan program you can expect to benefit most from.

Step two: complete a pre-qualification

This is where the process really begins and you save the most money. You will provide details about your current job, your assets, and residence history. You'll supply your employment, asset, and residence history information. We run your credit score and report. When we review this information we will give you a letter of pre-qualification. Your real estate agent will likely use the pre-qual (as they may call it) to make the best offer on the home you choose. While you're shopping for a new house with your real estate agent, we find the best program for you.

Step three: apply for your loan

Once you have made an offer and the sellers have accepted, you should apply for the loan. It's very easy, and you can do it online, right here on our website. When the time is right, we will order an appraisal of your new home.

Step four: your loan is funded

The real estate agents will find a title company to handle the "funding" and closing. We'll work with this company to ensure the papers your lender requires are avaiailable, and you'll probably}likely sign all these papers at this company's officeWe do all the work to coordinate with the title company to set your closing date. Because you don't need to coordinate this process, you can think about moving logistics, painting, carpet, and the details involved in moving into your new house.

You've answered some few questions, provided lots of information, applied , and before you know it, you are moving in! We take care of all the loan details so you can focus on finding the new home that's right for you.
